What is OHS Management System?

AS/NZS 4801:2001 is an occupational health and safety standard which is aimed at helping organisations develop and maintain a system that is focused on improving employees’ health and safety. The system aids in identifying hazards, assessing and evaluating risks, and implementing necessary control measures which are aimed at minimizing accidents.

The system is compatible with other international standards such as the quality (ISO 9001) and environmental (ISO 14001) management systems.
